Well-Being Retreat

August 21-23, 2017
Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center
Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Well-Being Retreat offers Benefits Plan members and their spouses a unique opportunity to explore wholeness through the spiritual, health, financial, and vocational aspects of their lives. Participants are able to customize the retreat experience by selecting the educational workshops and guided activities that best support their journey to well-being.

Board University’s Well-Being Retreat is hosted by The Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), in partnership with the Presbyterian Foundation and its subsidiary, New Covenant Trust Company.

Here’s what a few participants had to say about Well-Being Retreat 2016, held August 15-17 at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina:

“Came away very refreshed, very encouraged, and very comfortable with the Board of Pensions' and the Foundation's support for pastors and leaders.”

“This event really has to be one of the best I have ever attended. It not only helped me with some of my own ‘stuff,’ it gave me some great ideas to bring back to the local church. I can’t stress enough the importance of the workshops for self-care and for church care, a good balance of both.”

“The planning and presenting committee did a great job. It had a welcoming and comfortable feel. Everyone was totally approachable. Thank you for an informative and well-run conference.”

We hope to see you at Zephyr Point!
